Visit the Vulcan on Fathers' Day

Visit the Vulcan on Fathers’ Day
Treat Dad to a great time out at Visit the Vulcan on Fathers' Day. He can get a close-up look at Vulcan XL426 in its hangar and for an additional fee can climb inside for a guided tour of the cockpit.

As well as the Vulcan, there will be much to keep everyone entertained. There will be examples of the weapons carried by the Vulcan during its time with the RAF, including examples of the type of 1,000 lb high explosive bomb the Vulcan dropped on Port Stanley airfield during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.

Vulcan XL426 will be joined by a display of more than 40 classic cars from the Essex Mini Club and the South Eastern Vintage & Classic Vehicle Clun, making it a great time out for Dad on his special day and for the rest of the family.

There will also be vintage military vehicles and classic fire engines to enjoy, plus displays from the 10th Essex Living History Group and the Shoeburyness & South Essex Branch of the Royal Artillery Association.

The Rayleigh Brass Band will be provding musical entertainment during the day and a Storm Trooper and an Imperial Officer from Star Wars will be walking amongst the crowd to make sure everyone behaves themselves!

Refreshments will be on sale throughout the day. Our Hangar Shop will be open selling a selection of Vulcan souvenirs, including models, badges, patches, postcards, books and more.

Cockpit visits will take place every 15 mins on a timed ticket basis, so there will be no need to stand and queue. Cockpit visit tickets are subject to availability and will only be on sale on the day. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Children must be over 1 metre tall to visit the cockpit and must climb the entry ladder themselves (no carrying).

Limited free car parking will be available close to the Vulcan. Sorry – due to airport rules, we regret that no pets can be admitted with the exception of assistance dogs.
